    I know this sounds like a crazy question but is this a rooster or a hen? I bought 5 buffs at a local auction about 2 months ago (they were pullets). They were labeled as hens but I think I might have 2 roosters.The chicken in the 2nd and 3rd picture is Cindy Crawford (might have to change the name to Charlie). She/he attempts to crow every morning and I haven't gotten any eggs yet. The chicken in the top pic is Uma Thurman (might change name to Bosely). I am very new to chickens and this is my first flock. Please help me determine the sex.

    You definitely have a Charlie. If the other one has as big a comb (from side angle) and a tail that looks similar to Charlie, then you have a Bosely, too. I raised two Buff Orpington Roosters together who got along very well.

    The one in the pics is a boy and it sounds like your other might be as well

    Thanks everyone. I was wondering why I wasn't getting any eggs yet. I do have 3 buffs that do not have large combs so those must be my hens. Looks like I will be renaming my flock! lol
